System 16B Conversion Help

      According to his blog, "The Guru" is planning on selling reproduction Trackball interface PCB's for the System32. Sega Sonic and Where's Wally are the only two PCB's that I know of that use the Trackball I/O. If I'm not mistaken, Sega Sonic's I/O is the only one that does 3 trackballs (Wally only does 2).

      Given the Guru's recent dodgy sales tactics however, I don't know if I can advise buying one directly off of him. Possibly if they are distributed through a 3rd party store it would be safe(er).
      Recent?

      I'd ordered several "good condition working" boards from him a couple years ago, got them, only one works fully, and the other two were bowed a ridiculous amount, one with no controls, the other stripes in the background gfx layer. I didn't realize PCB's could bend so badly until buying from him. I might still have pics, I'll have to look.

      There's a reason he doesn't accept PayPal, and I doubt it's everyone else scamming him or whatever the reasoning was on the site.

      I'm glad he dumps stuff for preservation, his blog is sometimes useful, but in my book he's a shady (at best) seller.

      I had a fine transaction with Guru, fwiw.

      @jassin000 I thought you had a Spider-Man already?

    • Not to completely derail this thread...

      Guru sold my friend a Fire Shark, at the going rate price (which is not cheap). The board arrived with the custom Toaplan audio IC missing. The game was rendered inoperable, only possibility of repair would be to pull the IC from another Fire Shark board. It was sold as working. Sadly, from what I've heard from others, this wasn't an isolated incident.

      I do, but I need another Sys32 sac board for Golden Axe 2 conversion. ;)
      I owned a legit USA Golden Axe 2 B-board, but I traded it to @cpsystem3 for CPS3 SuperBIOS cart and SIMMs.
      You need the long roms for the GA2 though!

      Oh? I thought Spidey WAS a candidate, guess not.
      You know I've actually purchased a few Sys32 B-boards now just trying to get that "long" version.

      It's not been easy for me to find, and I'm still sorta looking on occasion.
      In this case I don't think a multi would make any since... IMO ONLY two good games on S32 are Spider-man and Golden Axe 2.

    • @jassin000 Well if he doesn't trade me for his spidey then I have one (j league). I'll keep an eye out for you too!

      attention : sir"s

      If you need a hand with this let me know, I can extricate a deal if you wish.
      I believe he is here in Western Australia.
      What's the go with this seller ? He just seems a little high on price to me?
      I was chasing a batman forever pcb a while ago from him. But the answers were vague at best?
      Hence why I am still looking for that item. :(
